Benjamin Leroux Savigny les Beaune 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy::Savigny les Beaune|
Speaking of delicious! The classic blend of sources for this cuvée is back, with fruit from a range of exposures and soil types. The lion's share of the 2017 comes from the outstanding Aux Forneaux terroir in the north of the village. Then there's Les Peuillets and 1er Cru Hauts Jarrons in the south, and Ez Connardises in the heart of the village making up the quartet of parcels. Again, the fruit was mostly destemmed (15% whole bunches were applied to the Aux Forneaux parcel) and the wine saw next to no new oak. Two-thirds of the Savigny villages is now raised in foudre. The notes below describe the wine well--it's a lifted, aromatic and super pretty red Burgundy laced with delicate red fruits, rose and jasmine florals and a crunchy, refreshing finish. There's surprising depth in the context of the level but overall it's a super pure, pretty and floral red Burgundy.
